December 02, 2003|by TARA REILLY

The Washington County Planning Commission on Monday tabled a site plan for a wildlife preserve on 137 acres off Maryland 66 and U.S. 40.

A wildlife preserve is defined by the state as a regulated shooting area, associate planner Jill Baker told the Planning Commission.

Joseph Michael of Boonsboro submitted the site plan for the wildlife preserve, according to a county document.

Baker said the preserve would operate from October through March 31.

She said the preserve would be a place where birds would be hauled in, released and shot.

Planning Commission members said they wanted more information on the proposed preserve and that they wanted to visit the site.
